11:44 am
boards decision for the merging transportation issues that was not dealt with otherwise and because of the policymakers there were designed to be short and length efforts and end up being 10 packages a short end durable about 6 months is typical you'll see in a strategy analysis and as much of the data and work pulling together a bunch of information addressing new data presenting it in a way we have before you the first request for the report that supervisor president tang made and according to the adapted procedures we come back with a draft in which the folks sit for the board to approve and this
11:45 am
one goes forward with the full board of approval we have one more to go unless supervisor president tang wants to talk. >> through the chair you thank you very much i want to thank colleagues for considering this items i mean we have challenges with the public transportation on the wedding of town whether district 4 or 1 or 7 all those neighborhoods we have a huge population that needs to make trips to downtown or assess south bay that was our focus in the high-level analysis to engage in the fdr we hope after that report as marie said building upon a lot of work that has the forward initiate not trying to reinvent the wheel but backing take a birds eye
11:46 am
approach as we we can further want to take public transit to the various locations i think this will be insightful for us we hope to gain a set of recommendations after this so it is not just study it is put aside but actual items to approve our transportation system thank you. >> thank you. i'm glad you went down that path it was hopeful helpful this was a bridged document taking the things we've done down sunset the transit unreliability calm as a concern and the works we've done through our san francisco transportation plan we have the goez graphic disparities and you have to keep in mind that people
11:47 am
make rational choices and those are the occupant automobile trips reflect the liability and the quality of the caltrain transportation available to them so the way the san francisco board of directors sf toicht it's a 3 package document we have history in context that makes it capitulated by supervisor tang and quick digest of some of the quick development studies in the works and navigation to the sunset blue prints all questions will be looking at be closely the sfmta traffic staff for the progress and since the san francisco transportation plan in particular were adapted for switch backs and other things that is wonderful to improve the liability and we'll be looking at two other ones that are
11:48 am
worthy mendoza the beach master plan with the accessibility in the future and acknowledging this whole shared use phenomena going how that is effectively residents and the travel and decisions in the sunset once we do that quick background analyze it starts to look at the analysis section in there and eco system this is meant to be relatively short and quick but kind of a concrete rejsdz we'll look at the 9 travel data and come up with a travel market within the - has an organ designation where are 0 people traveling, too, and what are the mode for instance, this would be
11:49 am
students traveling to educational institutions or residents who are trying to get to jobs downtown or in the ed bay and one the aspects we have a lot of dictated but we have interviews to get a better understanding how people are traveling and why then we pick one to 3 travel market we'll dig to a more level of depth and elevate the options currently available to folks and how their applicable to the automobile we'll look at the next step the plans that are in the works that may not be aware that of will benefit the sunset district and how they'll benefit the travel market we're working with and i'll take a wild guessed this is not a big case but moving the
11:50 am
needle in the lawyers and lastly the recommendations the strategy sections we'll come up with a package of recommended strategies types of projects and policies for the each of those particular travel market and hopefully those will translate into recommendations we can move forward and to make it sound more specific we will give you two examples the f e.c. the names the travel study that looks at the metro and the transbay corridor that offices a change to feed into the n trainline the matt is looking at as well as the express buses from the sunset district to downtown in the ed bay there is a known bans the statistic
11:51 am
analysis baselines the transit it is one recommendation and another recommendations that makes better use of the transit hub for instance, the bike sharing for the wrlt or other designations in the sunset and after their analysis i had a set of recommendations with all strategic analysis ultimately the board will have an opportunity to accept the recommendations one other comment it is focused on the west side it leans itself to the accessibility issues in the outreach neighborhoods that's timely and all will go into the just want and i'm happy to
11:52 am
answer any questions you may have. and colleagues any questions first supervisor wiener. >> thank you and i'm glad this is happening it is improving the transit options on the west side of town it's a glazing hole and problematic that is so much faster to go to the east bay than the uttering sunset and particularly richmond richmond side of things that allows the board to do i know it's part of the supervisor president tang project also the housing, you know pretty sure the view that transit view needs to follow housing so in terms of that work is this including 250k9d how housing production will i want to give supervisor president tang a lot of credit housing on the wedding it is the tab both
11:53 am
to talk about addressing hours on the west side. >> it won't be the focus but the high levels we'll be looking at that. >> and if i can through the chair in response in on ideal situations we'll have a plan for helping transit to move quicker but the nature of the west side we're redundant to build anything my hope we'll get some of the various high-level options in place first but with the mindset in the that blue print we talk about what happens with the potential one thousand units on the west side. >> i was great that the conversation was happening for example, in supervisor cowen's district and supervisor kim's district it will be the two district we're seeing hens tens
11:54 am
the thousands of units being alleged the t third is unacceptable how inaccurate that service is so the urban needs more and more investment and we need to prioritize those areas of the city so it's foreign and probably talking to residents on the wedding that maybe ethnical it is helpful i found it is helpful to talk about those addressing tens of thousands we're not asking for that level and people really get it when you talk about you how the housing has to be linked ii i that's my $0.02 and commissioners christen. >> i believe i participate in this i don't know the name but a
11:55 am
similar function will this study will include the data on things like population and notes or information on troiktsdz schools and shopping supervisor wiener said housing clusters and medical centers we're looking at two generatesors of trips i think the through score the planning is tied to transportation we have a different circumstance than in my district but the corporation t is what we look at in terms of traffic great i look forward to the study. >> thank you for your excellent e.r. excellent comments cottage rat with the timeline when changes come along the changes have to be short and long-term
11:56 am
